, a new poll shows in the last nine days, romney has whittled the president's 15 point lead down to six points. and a new real clear politics average of all the national polls has romney edging ahead of president obama for the first time this year. south of cleveland last night, meanwhile, an estimated 12,000 people showed up in the cold to support romney who was introduced by fired up governor of new jersey, mr. chris christie. >> a few weeks ago, i watched the democratic national convention, i did it as a sacrifice and service to my country. i sat on my couch in my living room, i made my 12-year-old son patrick bring me a big bottle of water because when i hear that much b.s., i get lightheaded. i want to help the president i'm sure because he loves me. i'm sure he's out there listening. mr. president, you have lived inside 1600 pennsylvania avenue for four years. if you can't change washington from inside the white house, then let's get you the plane ticket back to chicago you've earned. >> romney who is holding three more campaign events today in ohio shows you you how much they thi
. this afternoon pew released a poll that showed a dramatic shift toward romney. this poll covers the four days since the debate, and it has romney pulling even with president obama among registered voters, 46% even. four weeks ago pew had obama up by nine among registered voters, so this has been a huge shift in the pew poll. the move in the pew poll towards romney is greater among likely voters. romney is surging ahead to 49%. four weeks ago obama led among likely voters by eight. now to the latest gallup tracking poll which covers the last seven days. gallup has president obama back in the lead at 50 to 45. what a difference from the other poll. that's exactly where the race stood before the debate. romney had surged in the tracking poll. the two candidates were actually tied in the three days immediately after the debate, but the president seems to have wiped out romney's gains in the gallup poll. joining me right now are howard fineman, editorial director of the "huffington post," and the honorable michael nutter, mayor of philadelphia and presidential surrogate in this tough campaign. gen
in governor romney's favor. in the latest nbc news polling, chris, they're showing that seniors are, that 83% of them say that they're enthusiastic about voting. that's up six points from 2008. that's a group that tends to lean republican. but when you look at latinos and young people, enthusiasm among young people down 20 points, enthusiasm among latinos, down 8 points from 2008. those are important voting blocs for the president. >> you've got it, and the deal is this, mitt romney's going to win seniors, 60% of seniors, something like that. he's going to win massively, and tear all going to go vote because they do, because they're good citizens, and they read, and they go vote. that's the deal. what barack obama did in 2008 was expanded the universe of potential democratic voters. he brought in a lot of first-time voters. the footprint of minority voters, the footprint of young voters was larger inside the electorate than usual. the problem with doing that is he promised them a lot of stuff, a lot of stuff in order to do that. and, of course, the reality of governance and the reality of wh

governor romney's strong performance in last week's presidential debate a new "gallup poll" taken in the first three days after the faceoff, shows the two contenders locked into a dead-heat, 47% each. what does governor romney's team need to do to keep up the momentum? erin mcpike, national political reporter for "real clear politics.". erin, i know a lot of republicans are saying the momentum has swung governor romney's way. it is a sprint to the finish line. you seem to be a little more cautious about that. why? >> i am because i'm looking at "real clear politics" polling averages of all the battleground states and the president is still ahead in big states he needs to win like wisconsin and ohio. he also still winning in new hampshire and nevada. and when you add those states to the electoral college map, it shows still that it's a tough way for mitt romney to go. he has got to win more than just say virginia and florida if he can win those now. jon: how many of those polls that "real clear politics" averages, how many have been taken post-debate, do you know? are they reflecti
-identified republicans were up in the post-debate polls. so the wind has definitely been at romney's back, that's for sure, but the composition changed and changed numbers as well. >> i think there will be paul ryan's fourth debate since he's been in congress, so definitely new to that game, whereas joe bietden has been around 40-plus years in the senate. >> a long time. pressure on both, that's for sure. >> it will be high drama. >>> one month after the deadly attack on the u.s. ambassador to libya and three other americans in benghazi we were learning more about security fears leading up to the assault. state department documents show the u.s. embassy in libya asked for a four-month extension for a 16-member security team and the team's commander tells abc news, that ambassador chris stevens wanted the security force to stay even longer, past august. but no request was actually received. in fact, a request for an extension past august, it was, but no never made even though it had been confirmed and it was granted. but they had never actually put that request through. but tragic, if indeed tha
. this is the first poll based entirely on interviews after the debate. mitt romney had a modest debate bounce. the question is will it be a blip or lasting change. >> gretchen: look at the university of colorado forecasting model. this is interesting. this is the only model that looks at the electoral college and you need those votes to be president. 330, of the 538 map are going to mitt romney. this is the same out fit in august or september or august 22nd prediction they said the same thing. but romney picked up five more points. >> steve: what they do. they look at economics of what is going on nationally and local and state level . they look at wealth and they look at unemployment and all sorts of stuff. they predict mitt romney will win these states. new mexico and that is new since they updated it and, north carolina and win virginia ohio new hampshire colorado, wisconsin and ohio and florida and barack will win michigan and nevada. >> gretchen: i don't think that romney will win minnesota. as a native of that state, that is in the obama camp. >> they say voters hold democrats more resp

.com for the latest throughout the day. >>> a new cnn/orc poll showed mitt romney registered a big bounce in the buckeye state after the first presidential debate. likely ohio voters now have the president's lead dwindling to four points, that's well within the margin of error. that makes the race for ohio's 18 electoral votes a statistical tie. before the debate some polls showed the president leading by as many as ten points. no republican has won the presidency without carrying ohio. >> i think there's probably relief from the obama side that our poll shows him leading through. >>> nine minutes after the hour, mitt romney is not running from big bird. in fact, he's embracing big bird after his pledge to cut funding from pbs. the obama camp went on the offensive accusing the republican nominee of trying to kill the popular "sesame street" character. but romney is not backing down. listen to what he told wolf blitzer in "the situation room" last night. >> big sbird going to be just fine. "sesame street" is a very successful enterprise. i don't believe cnn gets government funding but some

voters have a favorable opinion of mitt romney than president obama, but only by a hair. and in a poll that was taken after the debate, a fox news poll. mitt romney had 52% favorability rating. one point higher than the president's 51%, but 4 points higher than before the debate in denver whereas the president's number didn't budge before and after. in the second round of debating could maybe the numbers flip again since this format leaves both candidates a lot of room to be, remember, not only for what they say, but what they do or where they stand. when vice-president al gore stood too close to then governor george w. bush and looked awkward. >> and, president obama is a few points ahead in a few critical swing states. so, a strong debate at hofstra university out on long island is important for both men, back to you. >> alisyn: it should be really interesting, thanks for the preview, important policy will be interesting to hear them talk about that, including one of the questions that they said was going to be what is the u.s.'s role in the world? >> that's in the third and final de

ago, republicans were quick to own all the pew data and the fact that romney was leading in the polls. the fact that it's not trending towards them now seems odd. megyn: the questions were raised because they chaingsd it so close teen election day, tucker. >> the cell phone change is not the only change that was made. the key change is in the sample, who gets the calls. they increased the size of the non-white sample in their sample set. megyn: that's one of the things axlerod wanted them to do. >> that's the key here. i have no knowledge that gallup is doing anything wrong or doing it because of pressure the federal government or the obama campaign. i'm merely noting this is a big deal. it has had a measurable change on the poll outcome on the band wagon effect is real. if people look at the polls and think somebody is going to win, if it's clear that person is leading, that person tends to get more support because he is leading. this is not a small thing. >> i would say we are talking about fractions and 1%, 2%. these aren't big massive jumps. truly the methodologies are important b
